Thank you for purchasing the BP3600 Blood Pressure Monitor. The unit has been
constructed using reliable circuitry and durable materials. Used properly, this unit will
provide years of satisfactory use.
The device is intended for use by individuals 12 years and older to measure the systolic
and diastolic blood pressure and pulse rate. All values can be read out in one LCD
DISPLAY. Measurement position is on adult upper arm only.
Blood pressure measurement determined with this device are equivalent to those obtained
by a trained observer using the cuff/ stethoscope auscultation method, within the limits
prescribed by the American National Standard (ANSI/AAMI Sp10) for electronic
sphygmomanometers.

1. Do not drop the unit. Protect it from sudden jars or shocks.
2. Do not insert foreign objects into any openings.
3. Do not attempt to disassemble the unit.
4. Do not crush the pressure cuff.
5. If the unit has been stored at temperatures below 0°C, leave it in a warm place for
about 15 minutes before using it. Otherwise, the cuff may not inflate properly.
6. Do not store the unit in direct sunlight, high humidity or dust.
7. To avoid any possibility of accidental strangulation, keep this unit away from children
and do not drape tubing around your neck.
8. Ensure that children do not use the instrument unsupervised; some parts are small
enough to be swallowed.

Safety Notice
Important Instructions Before Use
1. Do not confuse self-monitoring with self-diagnosis. Blood pressure measurements should
only be interpreted by a health professional who is familiar with your medical history.
2. Contact your physician if test results regularly indicate abnormal readings.
3. If you are taking medication, consult with your physician to determine the most appropriate
time to measure your blood pressure. NEVER change a prescribed medication without first
consulting with your physician.
4. Individuals with serious circulation problems may experience discomfort. Consult your
physician prior to use.
5. For persons with irregular or unstable circulation resulting from diabetes, liver disease,
arteriosclerosis or other medical conditions, there may be variations in blood pressure
values measured at the wrist versus at the upper arm. Monitoring the trends in your blood
pressure taken at either the arm or the wrist is nevertheless useful and important.
6. People suffering from vascular constriction, liver disorders or diabetes, people with
cardiac pacemakers or a weak pulse, and women who are pregnant should consult their
physician before measuring their blood pressure themselves. Different values may be
obtained due to their condition.
7. People suffering from arrhythmias such as atrial or ventricular premature beats or atrial
fibrillation only use this blood pressure monitor in consultation with your doctor. In certain cases
oscillometric measurement method can produce incorrect readings.
8. Too frequent measurements can cause injury to the patient due to blood flow interference.
9. The cuff should not be applied over a wound as this can cause further injury.
10. DO NOT attach the cuff to a limb being used for IV infusions or any other intravascular
access, therapy or an arterio-venous (A-V) shunt. The cuff inflation can temporarily
block blood flow, potentially causing harm to the patient.
11. The cuff should not be placed on the arm on the side of a mastectomy. In the case of a
double mastectomy use the side of the least dominant arm.
12. Pressurization of the cuff can temporarily cause loss of function of simultaneously used
monitoring equipment on the same limb
13. A compressed or kinked connection hose may cause continuous cuff pressure resulting
in blood flow interference and potentially harmful injury to the patient.

Possible Cause
Solution
Cuff is too tight or not properly
positioned on the arm
Firmly reposition cuff approximately
1-2cm (1/2”) above the elbow joint
(See Page 11)
Inaccurate test results due to body
movement or monitor movement
Sit in a relaxed position with arm placed
near heart. Avoid speaking or moving
body parts while testing. Make sure the
monitor unit is placed in a stationary
position throughout the testing period.
( See Page 8)
Blood pressure results
are not within typical
range
Blood pressure is the force of blood pushing against the walls of arteries. It is typically
measured in millimeters of mercury (mmHg.) Systolic blood pressure is the maximum
force exerted against blood vessel walls each time the heart beats. Diastolic blood
pressure is the force exerted on blood vessels when the heart is resting between beats.
An individual’s blood pressure frequently changes throughout the course of a day.
Excitement and tension can cause blood pressure to rise, while drinking alcohol and
bathing can lower blood pressure. Certain hormones like adrenaline (which your
body releases under stress) can cause blood vessels to constrict, leading to a rise in
blood pressure.
If these measuring numbers become too high, it means the heart is working harder
than it should.

Health Reminder
The BP3600 is equipped with a classification indicator based on established guidelines
from the World Health Organization. The chart below (color coded on monitor unit)
indicates test results.
Hypertension is a dangerous disease that can affect the quality of life. It can lead
to a lot of problems including heart failure, kidney failure, and cerebral hemorrhaging.
By maintaining a healthy lifestyle and visiting your physician on a regular basis,
hypertension and relative diseases are much easier to control when diagnosed in their
early stages.

Q:What is the difference between measuring blood pressure at home or at a professional
healthcare clinic?
22
Maintenance
1. Avoid dropping, slamming, or throwing the unit.
A:Blood pressure readings taken at home are now seen to give a more accurate account
as they better reflect your daily life. Readings can be elevated when taken in a clinical or
medical environment. This is known as White Coat Hypertension and may be caused by
feeling anxious or nervous.
